COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BBC Nut Brown Ale has a diverse grain bill which lends this traditional English ale a variety of flavors that coalesce into a remarkably smooth and pleasant drink. Additions of various pale, caramel and dark malts create a smooth, sweet malt profile with hints of roasted nuttiness. Multiple additions of English hops round out the flavors and give this classic beer a true flavor of the Old World.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2010
Draft sample at the St. Matthews brewery. Pours a clear brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of nuts, brown sugar, toasted malts, caramel, and very faint hops. The flavor is sweet and toasty, with malts, nuts, caramel, brown sugar, and cardboard. Light-medium bodied, with average carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Very plain, unexciting nut brown ale.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Bottle thanks to beerbill. Pours with a hazy brown body and a tan head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, light sherry and vinous notes. A bit of chocolate covered raisins as well. Flavor is kind of bland. Some caramel, some raisin and vinous notes. A touch of chocolate, but it is pretty watery. Medium to light bubbles, watery mouthfeel.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Pours a rich brown with a thin foamy tan head. Aroma of roast malt, mild nut and biscuit. Mild nutty and roast malt taste. Easy drinking, nothing phenomenal but good still. Medium light body with high carbonation.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a thick creamy rosy beige head. The aroma is roasted malt and nuts. Initial flavor is pretty full, rich, malty, weak coffee. Later it becomes a bit more nutty. The finish is dry, some bitterness, with a very weak coffee note. The bitterness is moderate but adds balance to the rest of the flavors. Medium body and somewhat smooth. A decent local offering.

obguthr (3838) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2009
Tinny aroma with light chocolate notes. Clear brown with a gigantic peach colored head. Tinny almond flavor with sweet hints of marzipan, but a little dirty. Pecan finish. Alcohol is a little insistent at times.

biznizness (1071) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 19, 2009
An old beer of the month that I found lingering the other day as I attempt to clean out my beer fridge. The label was different, but so was the one on the other BBC beer they sent me (amber/alt). Tasty brown, certainly not anything crazy, but solid, like the amber. Would try more from this place if they distributed here.

screigh (459) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Pours a light brown bordering on copper. No head at all. Malty aroma with a hint of caramel. Taste is thin, lightly malty and just the proper amount of bitterness in the finish. OK brown ale.

Ratman197 (9808) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle poured a clear brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of fudge, carmel and light nuts. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, light carmel and a hint of nuts with a smooth malty finish.

beerbill (3411) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
12 oz. bottle that I received as a gift from my friend Russell. Pours a hazy brown with a thin-moderate off-white head that faded to a film after the first two sips and left scant lace. Very pleasant aroma of hazelnuts and chocolate. Very nice. The flavor steps back a bit from the aroma and is not as rich. There is a solid dose of English malt up front along with some mild hazelnut and just a bit of coffee. Overall, this is a pretty solid English style brown ale.

Unfortunately I didn’t take down good tasting notes beyond the numbers for this one!
